From the loading of a tank trailer to the final delivery of fuel, there are several opportunities to improve uptime and track performance. The key to monitoring and controlling this process is data, and a new asset management system allows you to take command.
CivaConnect, Integrated Asset Management from OPW business unit Civacon, provides a number of benefits for fuel delivery fleet managers looking to keep an eye on their vehicles, drivers and product. Features like advanced retain protection, real-time non-permissive alerts, maintenance schedules and trailer inventory allow managers to promote performance at every step in trailer loading, transportation and unloading.
Because the new technology digitizes and networks all critical tank functions, all tracking through CivaConnect is remote and in real-time. Those with access to the interactive CivaConnect desktop program can receive user configurable real-time alerts, like when a driver intentionally bypasses the Cross-Over Prevention System (COPS) function prior to a delivery or leaves a station with retained product still onboard. They can also view the specific type of product in each compartment and whether or not compartments have been fully emptied. Notifications of overfill and grounding issues, as well as analytics that assist in identifying and forecasting trends, optimize fleet efficiency from beginning to end.
Apart from live monitoring, CivaConnect is a step forward in prevention. The interface builds out preventative maintenance schedules that take into account annual inspection, leak testing, license expiration and other important milestones. Attentive management is even more prepared because of this combination of present and future awareness.
Defining What's Next in Connectivity
Figuring out how to connect all tank trailer components was a feat in itself, but serving up the valuable insights that come from this connectivity in a digestible package added an extra challenge. Built on the technology of CivaConnect, the CivaCommand Smart Tank System, which prevents crossover and overfill while providing smart air controls, is another example of Civacon’s innovative spirit. Each of the company’s efforts adds to the ultimate mission of boosting uptime and productivity for fleets around the world.
